ST. PAUL, Minn. – Krispy Kreme has reached an agreement with a University of Minnesota student who drove to Iowa every weekend to buy hundreds of donuts to resell in the Twin Cities area.
The company said in a statement Monday that Jayson Gonzalez of Champlin can now work with Krispy Kreme as an independent operator.
The agreement also includes a 500 dozen donation when he reboots.
Last week, Krispy Kreme Gonzalez said to stop selling the venture because it created a liability for the company.
Gonzalez would drive approximately eight hours of return to a Krispy Kreme store in Clive, Iowa, pack his car with up to 100 boxes, each with 12 donuts, and then drive up north to deliver them to Minneapolis-St. Paul.
The clothing giant said in its statement Monday that "temporary halt" was to ensure product quality and regulatory compliance.
